GND Speshul - The Next Day [Underground] by Pika-la-Cynique GND Speshul - The Next Day [Underground] by Pika-la-Cynique
The Penny Still Droppeth Not for Sarah, the David Bowie fangirl. Where the Celebrity Paradox/Dramatic Irony gets extremely weird and fudgy on my part is that as per Roommates the boys have all watched one another's films and make actor allusion jokes, so Jareth should know about his connection to Bowie and he has been in/spyed on Sarah's room and seen the posters and it's quite unlike him to not exploit THAT kind of an advantage, yet there will remain this mysterious blind-and-deaf-and-dumb spot, at least to those immediately concerned (although Lizzie seemed to have seen it...).

Why a goblin saw fit to gift Sarah with a months-old newspaper... although more timey-wimey stuff - Sarah and Luna have been Underground 7 hours their time, 2 days Building-time and.... near on 6 months RL-comic update time. Stuff happens somewhen in all that.

Jareth's take on the new album: [link]

In other news, yeah, Imma busy and pressed for time; you only get a one-shot silly - but the occasion needed marking.

Still :iconlouisagallie: steppin' up on colouring duty, bless.

It's very strange finally to arrive at these pages which I recognise as the 'new' material that was showing up when I started reading GND... and to discover that I now have some idea of what on earth they are talking about :D

This was utter confusion in the absence of any Bowie-knowledge, Labyrinth Arc, etc...

I like to think that Christine, being the good friend, and all, pre-ordered it for Sarah once the word got out. Glad to see that Sarah has a bandage on her face, and that her hair is down. :D

I can imagine Luna's non-reaction to the album news. A study in being underwhelmed, yes?

Is that Gip the goblin, or somebody else?

Not that I ever want to knock two characters heads together and say "WILL YOU JUST LOOK AT EACH OTHER?!" but I can't help thinking they should be sat down & explained to. Simultaneously, so neither one has the advantage. Probably.

Sorry, but as soon as I saw that band-aid I imagined Jareth in a nurse outfit tending to it... It helps to justify this by saying I was reading about the Joker this week. XD Anyway, yaaaay! New Bowie album! I can see Sarah giving Skeep money to go back to the building and ask Christine to buy it for her. lulz
lovely coloring LouisaGallie and as always great speshul Pika

...Is that thing on the rock a Snorkack? And does the white all around indicate some kinda snow-cave (OMG, Jareth, do NOT introduce Luna to your Mum!), or just fading out of background?

Well, unfortunately you're probably right. The fail field would have picked up on that by now if he was moonlighting. Its a funny thought of sarah's face when she found out though.

So is she.
But she left for the Underground with Jareth in November 2012, comic posting-date; I am not pyschic and NO ONE saw that new album coming. And iTunes doesn't work Underground.

A major oversight, in my opinion. Jareth should get on that whole modernizing the Underground project...

Scoring a Queen is kinda top priority at the moment, along with Containing Ridiculous and Embarrassing Chikin Rebellion, and Jareth is happy enough mooching Wifi from Erik in their apartment. Modernizing and redecorating are hoped to include Sarah's input as a concerned party, at some happy future point.

I'm half surprised he hasn't tried to leave some portal open from the Labyrinth to the apartment, in hopes of catching Wifi signal while home.

Then again, that might let rebel chikkins loose into the apartmentverse. So possibly best not to.

Haha, of course. The Goblin City needs a woman's touch. Awhhh. You should definitely sketch a picture of Jareth stealing or getting frustrated with Erik's Wifi. That's incredibly adorable. Basically, I just love your comics. I look almost every day in hope of a new one!

Oh, I desperately want her to realize the basis of her fangirly-ness at some point. I also want to see how Pika draws Snorkacks. And I didn't realize that the Building had its own time. And Sarah got a band-aid from somewhere?
This is just all kinds of wonderful.
